Thinking of the previous post, and of this one, led to a further epiphany.
Pundits are wondering why, when they ask how Senator Kerry intends to conduct the war, he replies in term of "law enforcement". I say he is answering the question as clearly as he dares.
He doesn't intend to.
His first act as President will be to declare an end to hostilities, and to turn over Iraq (and command of the few troops he leaves there) to the United Nations.
